HR essentials

These policies work in conjunction with your terms and conditions of employment. You are required to familiarise yourself with the details as part of your employment.

Management of underperformance

Equality and fairness

The University encourages a positive working environment for everyone. The Dignity at Warwick policy outlines your responsibility as a member of staff to treat everyone around you with respect. In the rare occasions that this doesn't happen in return, it also outlines how you can access support.

Pay and benefits

The majority of staff are paid on the 24th of each month, and your payslip is sent to your department. More details are available on our Pay and Expenses pages.

There are a number of reward and benefits of working for the University which you may wish to access, as well as information on pensions.


Claims for expenses are processes by our payroll team. More information can be found here.


Your contract outlines what holiday allowance you have for this holiday year (our holiday year runs from 1 October to 30 September). You must book holiday in advance and in agreement with your line manager. More information can be found here.


You should report sickness to your line manager on the first day of sickness and keep in touch after that. More information on absence can be found here.

Conflicts of interest

During your employment there may be times when there may be a Personal Conflicts of Interest policy  between your work and personal life. This policy outlines the actions you must take when this happens.
